Apartment Scams in Barcelona

As was mentioned in my last post, if it seems too good to be true, it often is.

This is the case a great deal of the time for people looking for apartments in Barcelona. Those who search for accommodation through web sites such as loquo.com are often attracted to adds for beautiful apartments in prime locations, which are relatively cheap in price. The photos and deals presented in the adds are amazing and very, very attractive.

The fact is that many of these offers are bogus scams. They flood sights such as loquo.com and often ask for some form of payment before the keys are received or find other ways to try to take money from you. That does not seem like a fair deal to me.

It is always safer and often easier to deal with agencies when searching for accommodation. Everything is legitimate.

When my friends and I first came here the people at Barcelona-Home were very helpful and professional, and they saved us a lot of hassle. Check out their rooms and apartments in Barcelona here.
